Enjoyed learning about Asheville history. Went to the Arcade Shopping Center the next day. Might not have known about it if hadn’t taken the tour.
A fun and informative walking tour which included samples of ice cream and alcohol! Should note that it does not end where it begins and the walk back to the starting point is about 10 minutes. The entire tour is more like 2 1/2 hours. We mention this because we parked on the street and the maximum for the meter is only two hours!
David's personal stories of living in Asheville. David is a great tour guide of Asheville. I plan to take my wife on the tour.
Fantastic walking tour with many stops. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable with history of Asheville. Great learning experience.
The history of Asheville and the stories behind the beautiful architecture . The stops at the ice cream shop and distillery were a nice bonus.
Spent a wonderful afternoon with Sarah on November 14, 2022. A sweet and charming lady who provided a well paced, thoughtful and humorous at times tour. The two hour visit was well organized and Sarah provided her input on the trends, and other factors influencing a strategic, political, and social situations in Asheville! A clever lady. Bravo. Vince
